Mosquito net outreach #2

On Thursday the team completed its second mosquito net outreach, this time at a different village 10 minutes up the road. We visited 6 houses and set up a total of 20 nets. 

Thanks to the van's axel blowout, we had to take boda bodas. I rode with 2 other people on one of these and wanted to cry. (The way back, with only 1 other person, was less frightening. Enjoyable even.)
